The ultra-popular A Quiet Place series may one day see another direct sequel–as reported–but it looks like the next chapter will be a spinoff.
A Quiet Place Part II, released last weekend, has already raked in nearly $90 million worldwide, as reported by Deadline, a success story that made another entry inevitable. And, as reported here in Horror News Network, a script for the next film–written by Jeff Nichols (2011’s Take Shelter and 2016’s Midnight Special)–was submitted and apparently approved.
But it was just revealed this weekend that the next movie–slated for a March 31, 2023 release–will not be A Quiet Place Part III, but some sort of spinoff of the original story.
Nichols reportedly also will direct this spinoff, that was written from a story idea from John Krasinski, who wrote and directed the sequel. Krasinski will not have an active role in the spinoff, according to reports, and no details on this new storyline have been forthcoming.
The already-successful sequel from Paramount Pictures follows the Abbott family as they venture forth from their home and into “the terrors of the outside world as they fight for survival in silence against the creatures that hunt by sound.”
The original 2018 A Quiet Place–directed by Krasinski from a screenplay he wrote with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck–was a very pleasant surprise at the box office, pulling in more than $340 million worldwide on a budget of $20 million.
